Insights by Vehicle Type: Convenience and Comfort Drive the Adoption of passenger vehicles

In terms of vehicle type, passenger vehicles is expected to contribute 55.4% share of the market owing to consumers' growing demand for in-vehicle comfort, connectivity, and entertainment features. As automotive technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, passengers have come to expect seamless integration of their mobile devices and online content into the vehicle experience. The automotive cloud enables critical infotainment functions such as satellite navigation, voice assistance, music and media streaming that enhance convenience on the go. It allows over-the-air updates to improve the in-car experience over time. With the automotive cloud, passengers gain on-demand access to next-generation features like augmented reality heads-up displays without needing to visit a service center. This level of personalization and constant innovation is fueling adoption of connected passenger vehicles and driving the growth of this segment.

Insights by deployment type: Data Security Drives Preference for Private Cloud Deployment

In terms of deployment type, private cloud is expected to contribute 68.6% share of the market owing to heightened concerns about cybersecurity and data privacy in automotive systems. As vehicles become more connected, there is increased vulnerability to external threats like hacking and privacy breaches if sensitive drive and passenger data is hosted on a shared public cloud platform. Automakers recognize the need to establish robust safeguards around consumer information transmitted over the air. Private cloud infrastructure located on the manufacturer's secured internal servers provides centralized control and multi-layered protection against such risks. It ensures customer trust in new mobility technologies. By mitigating issues surrounding unauthorized access and leakage of private travel patterns, infotainment preferences etc., private cloud addresses a major adoption barrier and thus sees higher preference over public deployment alternatives.

Insights by Applications: Growth in Infotainment Applications Fuels Overall Cloud Demand

In terms of application, infotainment systems is expected to contribute 25.3% share of the market driven by the rising indispensability of in-car entertainment and communication services. Modern drivers and passengers expect intuitively designed onboard multimedia and seamless integration of their favorite content and apps into the car cabin experience. The cloud architecture facilitates the rapid development and deployment of these value-added infotainment features. It enables dynamic over-the-air upgrades to navigation databases, new audio/video streaming options and smartphone mirroring capabilities. Further, as vehicles transition to become mobility platforms, future application areas around augmented reality, ride-sharing connectivity, and autonomous driving will amplify the automotive cloud usage. Thus, the diverse possibilities under the broad infotainment category boosts adoption across vehicle segments and cloud deployment models to drive segment leadership in this sphere.
